The Lyrics

Even the old folks they never knew
Why it runs out the way it do
I been wonderin but don't have a clue
Why I'm out of fishin' line
Fishin hat, fishin vest
Got a fishin tattoo on my chest
Stole my worms right out of a bird's nest
But I'm out of fishin line

20 miles to the store from here
I'd keel over if I walked I fear
I would string together my own hair
To make some new fishin' line
Oh, I'm out of fishin' line

One summer night with my fishin' line
I caught a bass for suppertime
Served it up over some sweet red wine
With my good 'ole fishin' line
But today I caught a fish in glance
Thought I could put him into a trance
He laughed and splahed water all on my pants
Wish I had some fishin' line

20 miles to the store from here
I'd keel over if I walked I fear
I would string together my own hair
To make some new fishin' line
Oh, I'm out of fishin' line

First fish, ever I caught
Used my best line all strong and taught
Took him home thou he should have been bought
Cuz I'm out of fishin line
Wish I had some fishin line
Took a hook from my tacklebox
Sharp'ed it up on some good hard rocks
Tried to tie it with an old square knot
But I'm out of fishin' line
Day breaks and the fish wake up
And the worms swim and the lines are cast
And the pond's stock full and here I sigh, bummer

I tried to go back as if I might
Next day every fish was out of site
Caught some seaweed and an old pink kite
But I got no fish with line
It doesn't come as a surprise I'd say
I've never caught a thing on the second day
Guess I'll go home and then I'll pray
That I'll catch another day
A big fish that's gone astray


20 miles to the store from here
I nearly died walking it I swear
Birds were dropping presents in my hair
But I got some fishing line
Now it's past my fishing time
Oh screw you fishing line
Gonna hang by fishing line
